Australian Tourist Visa for Filipinos

In 2013, I applied for Australian Tourist Visa and was denied one. At that time, I already have a 10-year multiple entry US Visa and have visited at least 15 countries in the past 2 years including South Korea, Taiwan and China. I think I have submitted all requirements including a personal bank certificate from BDO with an amount enough for me to live in Australia for 6 months with a spending capacity of 100USD per day, a travel insurance from Blue Cross, business papers and related documents, and other documents of some properties. Despite those, I was denied of a visa. Surprisingly, based on the letter I received, the case officer has noted that: I have never been outside the country. A shocking result of evaluation for me. So I immediately emailed the case officer about the matter and attached scanned pages of my passport. To my surprise, I was told that they can only open my case if I have to pay anew. Meaning, I have to apply again and pay another 6,400.00 for a wrong decision given to me! I declined a second application then and went instead to Nepal.

This year, since I really wanted to see Australia and New Zealand, I applied again, and this time around, they gave me a multiple entry visa for 3 months. The Embassy gives, 3, 6 or 12 months visa based on one’s request.

Many say that getting a visa approved is based on the completeness and correctness of the documents submitted. I agree to some extent. However, another factor, beyond the applicant’s control, which actually determines if a visa will be granted or denied, is the mood of the visa officer making the evaluation. We can not deny that they are also human beings, and in some (rare) occasions, they make unfavorable decisions. I do not claim that I should have been issued a visa in 2013; what I claim is that, the decision to my application made by the case officer is not for me. He made a wrong remarks when he said that I have never been outside the Philippines.

Having both the experience of being denied and granted a visa still doesn’t make me a visa expert or anything close to that. I am just recounting my experience without any intention to put harm to anyone.

REQUIREMENTS WHEN APPLYING FOR AN AUSTRALIAN TOURIST VISA (no sponsor)

  1. Properly filled up Application Form 1419 (subclass 600) – make sure it’s the latest form as they always update it. Ensure also that a valid and existing email address is indicated.
  2. Visa Fee of 130 Australian Dollars (because application is made in Manila/outside Australia) – this must be in the form of Manager’s Cheque payable to “Australian Embassy Manila” and must be in Philippine currency (check exchange rate with the bank or call the Visa Center first prior to buying the MC). Credit card payment is also accepted. There is a page in the Application Form for electronic payment. Note however that there is additional surcharge for electronic payment.
  3. Photo copy of all passport pages with immigration stamps, visa from other countries and the bio page. Also, the passport must be valid for travel. Attached photo copies of previous passport if available. Have it notarized. DO NOT SEND ORIGINAL PASSPORT.
  4. ID picture. The right size. Just tell it’s for Australia Visa and the Photo Center would know it already.
  5. Original NSO Birth Certificate
  6. If applicant has served in the military, certified military service records or discharge papers.
  7. Financial documents such as Bank Certificate enough to cover all expenses while on holidays. As to how much, no idea. I was denied a visa when I presented almost a million peso but was granted when I presented a little over 200,000.00 pesos. Include also photo copies of credit cards, if available.
  8. Work documents – if employed, documents such as certificate of employment, leave form, certificate of compensation/salary, BIR (also include SSS/GSIS certificate of contributions though not needed), company ID and other government issued IDs. If employer/professional, business papers such as DTI/SEC, Mayor’s Permit, BIR and other related documents
  9. Itinerary while in Australia which includes hotel, tour activities and related information. Do not include confirmed air ticket. It’s not required.

Place everything in a long brown envelop and send to:

Australian Visa Application Center
Mezzanine Floor Unit M01, Ecoplaza Building
2305 Pasong Tamo Extension,
Makati City, Metro Manila 1231

Counter hours
8am to 3pm Monday to Friday for lodging applications
8am to 4pm Monday to Friday for general information

Telephone
+632 790 4900
9am to 5pm Monday to Friday

Or if applicant is nearer to Cebu:

Australian Visa Application Center
9th Floor, Keppel Center, Unit 905, Samar Loop
cor. Cardinal Rosales Avenue,
Cebu Business Park, Cebu City 6000,

Telephone
+632 790 4900

Visa processing time varies but normally it takes 15 working days. Either granted or not, the Australian embassy will send an email notification about it. Any document submitted to the embassy will not be returned. If a visa is granted, they will issue a Visa Grant Notice. If denied, they will issue a letter explaining such.

The Australian Embassy does not provide visa sticker, only a Visa Grant Notice (similar to Dubai Visa).

  1. Ano po gagawin ko kong ang australian sponsor. Ko ang mag shoulder sa expenses ko sa visiting visa na aaplayan ko sa kanya po ba financial statement Kasi siya naman ang sasagot sa mga gastusin ko doon sa Australia ,,

    • Hi po sana matulungan nyo ako kung ano ang gagawin ko , gusto kasi ng bf ko na ako ang papuntang Australia para magkita kami .. sya lahat ang magshoulder ng gastos , at saka willing naman po syang magbigay ng mga documents kung may hihingin at saka 3 weeks lang naman po ang stay ko doon sa kanya , ang problema ko lang po regarding sa work ko ” katulong ” lang kasi ako , mabigyan po ba ako ng visa ? At saka po , Yong bank account ko po ay bdo kabayan account .. sana mabigyan po ninyo ako ng advice regarding dito .. salamat po

      • Hi Melvie!

        First of all, dont degrade yourself. Wag mo sabihin na “katulong ka lang, thats a very decent job”.

        Now talking about visa application, i will be very straight to the point. Isa sa mga requirements to apply a tourist visa papunta dito is to supply those docs to prove na babalik ka ng bansa before ma expire yung visa mo. Kahit pang sabihin mo na 3 weeks lang or less kailangan mong ma prove sa kanila na babalik ka sa Pinas. Manghihingi ang immigration ng employment certificate, ITR (tax records), letter from the employer about leave of abscence,payslip etc etc. Pwede naman siguro mang hingi sa agency mo or not sure if u can ask directly from your boss. I think mas maganda na magkita muna kau ng bf personally para mas madali yung application mo para na rin mka pag supply ka ng proof of relationship. And about your question kung mabinigyan ka ba ng visa, walang mkakasagot nyan talaga. Pero make sure na pag submit mo ng application mo, andun lahat ng hinihingi nila.

        Goodluck and Godbless!

        • Hello Spency,

          I am in the process of applying online and I had to bookmark your blog for easy access. That’s how hepful you are, thank you soo much!

          I need help in knowing if I need to have a passport size photo attached? Is there speficic format I need to follow when scanning the photo? I have COE, PaySlips, ITR and can ensure a letter to validate my approved vacation leave so i’m wondering if a bank statement will still be necessary? The money in my account isn’t much yet so im planning not to include a bank document because my travel dates (if approved) will still be on the first week of June (will save more til then) hehe.

          Thank you soo much again for the help.

    • Hi when you are applying for a sponsorhip visa you can apply through online.You can create an Immi Account in https://online.immi.gov.au/lusc/login.Choose Form 1149 Sponsorship for Sponsored Family Visitors.First step, your Australian Sponsor should provide a letter stating the purpose of your visit in Australia.Then fill up the form and need to attach scanned copies of required documents as listed There is a visa fee of 4k or 5K .I do not know the exact amount ,you can pay through your credit card.Once you completed all the documents needed they will assess your application then wait for 3weeks to 1 month for the visa grant notice if you passed or not.When your visa is granted they will require your sponsor a security bond amounting to P200,000 for security purposes but once you returned in your own country the money will refund to your sponsor.

  2. Good Afternoon po, nagpapalano po ako pumunta ng Australia ng Christmas, tourist lng po pero wala po akong kakilala dun at gusto ko lng mag travel mag isa. Ano po ba dapat ang gawin ko dahil wala naman po akong sponsor?

  3. few questions?
    What do i need to input for National Identity card?
    what if i will shoulder my travel plus help of my sponsor – what should i pick? self funds? since no options for both?
    Do i need to submit declaration 1195?
    how about picture passport size?
    Do i need to notarize my docs before i scan? or no need to? Thanks!

    • hi Candace, National Identity card can either be drivers licence, Unified Multi Purpose ID (SSS), I think also your BC, PRC licence..any gov. id’s. Are you applying for tourist visa? or Australian citizenship? I think that form is for Australian citizenship app..is your sponsor an Australian citizen? What are the choices to pick for the the funding details? If you will be shouldering expenses + some from your sponsor just select the nearest from the choices thereat and explain how the funding for your stay will gonna be. to support your claim, you can attach payslip, bank statement. Your sponsor will also have to attach proof that he/she has the capacity to provide your needs while there in Australia, meaning he/she has to provide you copies of bank statement, payslip or credit card statement + ask him to send you letter of invitation or statutory declaration, also passport bio page copy and other bills. U may also attach pictures of you together to prove that you been known each other. Make a cover letter too to simply explain your purpose for travelling there, what places you want to visit, when and where..so on ur cover letter you can include your itinerary.Please bear in mind that it is very important to convince your Case Officer of your intention to go back within the validity of your visa. u have to evidence your strong ties by providing assets if you have/proof of your relationship to your kids (if you have)/your siblings or your parents..if you are working, your Certificate of Employment and Compensation and approved leave from employer and also stating when you will be reporting back to work, ur BIR form 2316..just anything that convincingly shows you need to be back home. If you have flight tickets you can do so..though they dont advise to buy if no visa yet.It doesn’t mean you have to supply all of these, only if you have them and if you think it will help in your application..so go for it.

      Passport size picture..u can attach under Travel Document.

      If you colored scan your original copies I think its okay not to notarize them, like your BC or other PSA documents. so its up to you if you feel the need to. Good luck and God bless!

      • Hi, nag lodge ako ng application last November 15, 2016 and I received my visa last November 22,2016, since it was early to have it, I book a ticket flying on December 16,2016 but Philippine Airlines did not accept my passport, though it is valid for 7months, it will expire on July 2, 2017. So I made a rush renewal yesterday(Nov.28) as a walk in applicant in Robinsons Novaliches. It will release on December 9. Now my worries is that I ask DFA, if when I have a new passport it will be also dfferent passport number and they said Yes. Do I need to notify the Australian Embassy that I have a new passport, because in my visa, it was the old passport number stated there?

        • Hi Jane. Had the same situation before. Log in onyour immi account or search mo sa google, how to update passport changes on immi account then it will take you to border.gov.au and andun lahat ng instruction kung paano mo i update sa immi account,mabilis lang yun 24 to 48 hours. They will not issue you a new visa grant with your new passport on it. All you have to do is check VEVO tas dun na updated, would be better if you will print a copy dalhin mo during your flight just in case pero andun na lahat yan sa system nila.

  4. Good day po May nag invite po sakin to apply for work there tapos pagdating ko dun kakaysapin ako nung manging director nila about sa work(sales /promotions) pero d cla nag po provide ng sponsorship. So ang kukunin kong Visa ay “TEMPORARY WORK SUBCLASS VISA 400” validity ay 3-6 months. And sa bank acc naman i work on a perfume shop here and ung sweldo namin ay tru cash lng then maybe 2 months before i quit the job nagkaroon na kami ng atm so pede ko ba un gawing statement of acc then mag dedeposit na lng ako dun ng lera para show money ? . Any chance po na ma grant ng visa ? Thank u god bless

    • Bakit hndi nila kaya sponsoran ka nlng? Mhrap kc yung temporary work, pero kung mg pptulong k sa mga agency ms okay cguro ms mbbgyan k nila ng advise kung anong visa ang ms ok na iapply mo. Kasi after 6 months ng visa mo n temporary pano n mgging visa mo ulit

      • Hi dolly . Ok lng ba na without statement of bank acc only atm lng to prove na kaya kong alagaan sarili ko dun ? If not ok na ba ang 3months na statement of bank acc .salamt

    • Hi I am very interested on this topic you raised in. But as per checking subclass visa 400 is only for people who has been invited to do high specialized job or attend cultural presentation or entertainment. Good only for 3 months at di ka dapat nde australian company ang magbabayad sayo. I think sales/promotion na work will not fall in this visa category. I am also eager to find a sponsor in Australia actually papunta ako sa Melbourne bukas. I am also hoping to find a job there pero mukhang mahirap yata talaga.

  5. Madali daw if farm work ang kukunin mo trabaho kahit wla kang visa they might allow you to stay and provide you a visa ksi nga mahirap yata kumuha ng farm worker dun. Hard labor kasi. You can work for a year or two years then pwede ka na maghanap ng ibang work pag may visa ka na. Tiis tiis lng. But I also do not know where to get a farm job in OZ.

  6. Hi! I hope you guys can help me… i was granted a visa two days ago, dun sa itinerary ko sinabi ko na ill be going sa australia third weeke ng january, kaso nagkaron ng changes. Okay lang po ba yun? Di ba ko ma ku-question if ibang date ako pumunta bg aus? Thank you!

    • Frankly speaking, mahirap kumuha ng visa pag wala kang ipapakitang reason na babalik ka pa sa pinas. But u can always try, ask your bf to provide all docs, support u need. Send me an email spencetoby54@gmail.com
      I will give u guide on how to apply aus tourist visa, not from immigration but i hve experience, i proceesed my friend’s application

  9. Hi! Ask ko lang if malaki ba ang percentage na madeny if second time na mag apply ng tourist visa? Yung first application is granted single entry and 6 months stay. Plan ko kc apply ulit for my next visit. Thanks thanks po sa mga sasagot.

    • Hi Marie, no one can tell for sure really. Iba iba naman kc CO. But i think mas me-edge ka na dapat dahil nakapunta ka na dun, that is if you have a good standing or you have complied with your previous visa conditions. I have applied last year too, granted single entry and stayed 1 month in Oz and re-applied again in October and asked for multiple entry, it was also granted only after 2 days i submitted my online app.

      Good luck!

      • Wow..that’s good to hear po! Another question, may validity ba ang bank cert and statement like if kuha ako this week then next week ko xa upload sa attachments, valid pa ba yun? Mejo busy kc ako kaya di ko xa maisingit pagkuha.thanks po

        • Hi ME, for your assistance please. I lodge my online application on 6-Jan and just received an acknowledgement confirmation. I would like to follow up, may I ask the email address where I can make a follow up ? Thanks

  10. Good day po sa lahat. inquire lang po kung madali po ba ang pagkuha nang australian fiance visa and how much is the cost for the fiance visa? mataas ba ang porsyento na madeny ito?

  11. Hi, I just want ask for advice I applied tourist visa po, what if po hindi pa ngrereply ung CO if grant or refuse tapos po ung intent to be in Au po eh hindi pa nmn po nalagpas sa date na inindicate ko pero what if po lumampas po may tendency po ba ng refused na un? Thanks po.

    • @yezh
      Once your visa will be granted you are allowed to change your indicated dates on your application as long as di ka lalagpas sa maximum number of months indicated on your visa grant I think

  12. Hello, I lodged my application online more than 3 weeks ago and just received the acknowledgement confirmation, I would like to make a follow up. May I ask the email address where I can make follow up ? Thank you.

  13. Hi! Would like to thank you for blog. Your tips were definitely helpful in my tourist visa application.

    • Hi June even ung bankstatement downloable online pwede basta latest. Kahit 100k ok na kung yung record mo sa bank is good 🙂

    • hi,

      ok naman siguro na ang 50 thou and UP.

      • yeah doesn’t matter how much as long as you can prove you will come back in Philippines. I applied last night and I got my visa grant today. That is so efficient hassle free uplicaton.

        • tama. mahalaga talaga ung pagbalik mo. kaya nagpagawa ako sa admin namin na nakasulat ung return date ko sa work. kasama yan sa pinasa ko online.

          at para sa mga governemnt employee na tulad ko dapat may Authority To Travel ka. hinahanap yan sa immigration natin. kundi di ka paalisin.

    Penge nadin po mga tips para magrand na visa ko. And lahat ng requirements na pwede ko ipasa. Thank you po.

    • hi ang alam ko walang direct na application sa embassy. magpapasa ka rin lng ng requirements dun.

      mag online ka na lng. madali lng naman.

      di ko masyado alam pag sponsor visa, if may time ka magback read ka na lng kasi alam ko marami din tulad mo ang case ng mga nandito sa forum. hopefully one of them can see your post para direct ka nyang matulungan.

    • may record ka na kasi sa kanila, alam nila yan kung nag ka visa ka na before or denied. mahirap mag tago kasi pag nakita nila yan baka lalo kang di makakuha.

  19. Hello po mag tatanong lang po para alam ko po gagawin buntis po ako gusto po ng lalaki naka buntis sakin ako ang pupunta sa kanya sa Australia sya po ang kukuha ng visa ko mabibigyan kaya ako ng visa po sakaling mag apply ng visa julien po

  22. Theny refuse mine too even I have complete documents. Its my second try. I think it depend on the mood of officers or they just earn money from refusal? A friend of mine her husband is australian. She apply visa through agency and her second try.. her visa was refuse but her child visa was granted. 😂

  23. Sir patulong naman tgal n nung visa request nmin apr 9 2017, under assessment p rin, pnu ko i follow up un, e hindi nman sila ngppatwag

    • Patience. Kung April 9 ka nagsubmit, factor in that kakalipas lang ng holy week, only 5 or 6 working days have passed. Some wait for a month, esp if peak season for travel. Kung first time to apply for visa, minsan mas matagal bec I assume they’re investigating/checking background and other stuff we submit with our applications. 😊

  24. Hi everyone!

    Thanks God.. visa grant receive last april 18 and i lodged it april 11.. thanks for the tips…

  25. Hi everyone. For those who have gone to Aus, what were the questions and docs the Philppine immigration asked from you? Salamat po sa mga sagot niyo..

  26. Hi, I tried to apply online but the “Evidence of Assets” is required document to upload. I’m only 24 and I still don’t have any assets/deeds to present. Will this be okay? I have proof of funds and credit card statements to present.

  27. Hi everyone. Sa mga nasa Aus na po ngayon na ang sponsor ay Aussie BF/fiance under visitor visa, anu ano po mga tinanong at hinanap sa inyo ng Phil immigration?
    Share naman po ng experiences para alam mapaghandaan ko po.

    Salamat po sa mga sagot niyo..

    • Hi Kaye,
      just keep a copy of your Aus visa and letter of supporting if you have specially sa e-visa . They gonna ask what ur current work in the Phils. Just casual question lng naman kaya mo yan it depends kasi 🙂

      • Salamat po sa response. Actually po, mag aattend ako ng short course from June to Sept. Everything is settled. One yr multiple entry with 3mos stay po ang visitor visa (business stream) ko. Punta ako this May then balik pinas sa June para lang maiprepare ko mga kailangan, kwarto, etc. Then balik Au pag malapit na ang short course. Ang fear ko po kasi baka hanapan ako ng CFO guidance and counselling cert ng Phil immi pag nalaman nilang kay bf ako tutuloy.

        What do you mean po pala ng e-visa? Thanks po

  28. Hi! i’m a first time traveler and never been outside the Philippines. I have plans of going to Australia next year. How are my chances in getting a tourist visa?

    • mine is below 100k. I attached bank certificate / employment and salary certificate / approved leave of absence and also guarantee letter from my employer. I attached also an invitation letter from my Australian friend, his bank account and some docs. of his properties showing that he can afford all my expenses while I’m in Australia. Thanks God naapproved naman.

  29. Hi! Tanong ko lang does the Australian Embassy cross check bank statement? Kumuha na po kasi akong bank statement at dahil nangailangan ang mother ko, nag-withdraw ako sa account ko. Ngayon, kabado ako baka kasi mag-verify sila bank at makitang hindi na yun ang amount na nakadeposit. Thank you.
